I have a trademark on "songbird" in the area of web hosting etc.  
Even on my tiny scale I do business worldwide.  How does my tiny 
business defend its trademark in Singapore?  A uniform DRP is a 
requirement for new gTLDs.

People overlook the fact that the real beneficiaries of a UDRP are
small businesses.  Big businesses can afford the legal bills.  Small
businesses cannot.
